Monday's Music Moves Me: 4/29/2012 ~ Spring is in the Air


Welcome to 2012's Monday's Music Moves Me!!! We are going to make this meme SPECTACULAR this year!! But of course, we cannot do that without all of you... so come on share your music with us and get your friends to share with us, too. Our fearless leader is none other that the sweetest and most wonderful Marie of XmasDolly. Helping her keep this train running are ME, my dear friend Stacy of Stacy Uncorked, the lovely Callie of Jamerican Spice and now we are introducing a new member of our crew... the wonderful and talented Cathy of Cathy Kennedy's Blog - let's give her a standing ovation, shall we. We will also have some helpers along the way when we need to because life is.... well, life!  For the month of May (starting today) our dear friend Denise of RunDMT, who is a faithful supporter of Monday's Music Moves Me, will be helping out due to lots of "life" that is going on with several of us. Thank you SO much Denise - you are AWESOME!!
Here is what you need to do to play along....

First step: Head on over to You Tube, or anywhere you get your music videos and post them on your blog! Upcoming themes are to you LOWER RIGHT of XmasDolly's blog.

Second Step: Grab our "Monday's Music Moves Me" Button, mine is on my right sidebar, or off of any of the hosts' sites.

Third step: SIGN THE LINKY - Follow your hosts (we will all follow you and try to comment each week), grab their buttons too when you visit (mine is on my right sidebar above the 4M button) and show them some love by leaving a comment.

Final step: Go visit the other Rockers on our Linky and PLEASE show them some love by leaving them a comment, you know you like comments, they do too!

This week's theme is FREEBIE WEEK!!! So you can post whatever is moving you to groove. With the weather here in Florida being hot and sunny, and all the fun things happening around central Florida, I'm thinking all about Spring. So here are the songs that have me moving this week.....

Daydream ~ Lovin' Spoonful

Feeling Groovy (59th Street Bridge) - Simon and Garfunkel

Beautiful Day ~ U2

And of course... I had to throw in one from the King.....

Spring Fever ~ Elvis Presley and Shelley Fabares

So now pick your songs, write a post and don't forget to add it to one of the linky's - there is one on each of the hosts' blog. We can't wait to hear your songs, plus you might be chosen as our Spotlight Dancer and be in the #1 or 2 linky spot, like this weeks spotlight winners.

Ashley of Dr. Pepper Diva ~~ and ~~ Martha of Mom on Caffeine


Don't forget to grab the Spotlight Dancer button from XmasDolly's blog and proudly display it on your blog showing everyone that you were picked!

Now, go on and post your songs... get your friends to post their favorite songs and link up so we all can hear them... and have a musical Monday.


I'm very sorry to say there are some people not playing along just using our linky to get traffic for their blogs! Unfortunately, these bloggers will be marked and ignored, you will not get any benefit from our linky, so don't bother. All we ask is that you leave a comment, grab our button, ad/or follow us. If you don't want to post a video, you can post a link to a video, or post some lyrics, but please - at least attempt to make it music related.

*** Just one more thing...
PLEASE, we are family friendly blogs
and while we really don't want to censor anyone,
but we do ask that you keep your songs rated PG13 or less.
If you find that you need to post songs of an explicit sexual nature or language,
please find a different venue.
If your song does contain a small amount of questionable language,
please put disclaimer BEFORE the video.
Thank you very much!***

omg Look at you! You go girl. Guess what love your choices, but I never heard this one by Elvis and look who is in that movie - Bing Crosby's kid Gary. Wow! Great choices Girlfriend Love the first one - it's one of of those I wanna be lazy day songs. lol

Danielle S said...

I love the double talk at the beginning of the Elvis clip. They are quite linguistic! Ha! Love your choices.

Cathy Kennedy said...

I love all of your freebie picks this rockin' Monday morning! You've given me a burst of energy with these songs. I'm ready to tackle the world, so watch out world here I come. =D

Thanks for the warm welcome to 4M. I'm really excited about being official.

The weather has been so lovely lately and that these songs are a perfect fit for it.

I run to U2's Beautiful Day. Love that song!!!

Stacy Uncorked said...

Every week you get me dancing in my seat! :) Some of these are new to me, but I'm loving each and every one! :) Have a great week, Lorie! :)

I fear that Spring is basically over in Florida! It felt awfully summer-like this weekend. Good picks this week.

A Daft Scots Lass said...

U2 is one of my favourite bands.

Lucinda said...

I love EVERY one of these, Lorie. I have never, ever heard "Spring Fever" before now. Wow. Hard for me to believe. My mother was one of the biggest Elvis fans ever.

Have a great week!

Michelle aka Naila Moon said...

Of course you had to put one by The King! lol
